|The Queen and the Prince Consort, the Crown Prince and Crown Princess, Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, and Princess Benedikte met the President and First Lady|
The crown princely couple accompanied the guests to Kronborg CastleWe saw this Missoni coat on Crown Princess Mary while on a trip to the Middle East in March, styled with black trousers for modesty purposes. As expected, it's even better with her usual princess styling. I remain smitten.
In the evening, the state banquet - and, more importantly, the tiaras.
pretty much generic, I'm afraid. Still, she looks pretty, you can't go wrong with her Diamond Floral Tiara, and that's quite a dinner roll on the back of her head. The Danish royal hairstylists were earning their fees on this night.
Crown Princess Mary
(with Crown Prince Frederik in a different grade of the same order)Mary's dress - a Jesper Høvring repeat, first seen at the pre-wedding dinner for the Luxembourg royal wedding in 2012 - has some personality. Personality in a good way, I think; against all ruffly odds, I'm basically digging it. Mary got me again. Crafty, this one.
